DC Labs Formula 918 is a mega potency chromium supplement that can help to improve the body's insulin sensitivity. Chromium is a mineral that the body needs, but is unable to produce. Typical diets don't contain enough chromium, so supplementation is important. Besides improving the body's insulin sensitivity chromium can also support the cardiovascular system, and it can benefit the eyes.

This is DC Labs Mega Potency formula. Chromium picolinate is a blend of the trace mineral chromium and picolinic acid. Picolinic acid is a natural metabolite which is found in breast milk. The reason it is combined with picolinic acic is that the chromium is then more easily absorbed and used by the body. Chromium picolinate has exhibited a convincing safety profile in clinical studies, even when taken with medication. However, it is important to note, that as with any dietary supplement, you should consult your physician before adding chromium picolinate to your medication regimen. Chromium has been studied a lot, and chromium picolinate has been analyzed in over 35 clinical trials utilizing over 2,000 participants. The research has demonstrated that chromium picolinate is safe at levels as high as 500 mg, or 500,000 mcg, in animals, which is more than 500 times the typical daily dose for an average adult; please note however, that these doses are NOT recommended.

A 1997 study in China involving 180 type II diabetes patients documented "spectacular" results in patients who took 500 mcg. of chromium picolinate two times per day. Following four months most of the patients no longer had the classic signs of diabetes. The patients blood sugar and insulin levels dropped to near normal, which was not achievable with their medication. A follow-up study by some of the same researchers monitored 833 type II diabetes patients who took 500 mcg. of chromium picolinate twice daily and revealed a considerable reduction in fasting blood sugar levels and in post-meal blood sugar levels. There were no adverse side effects noted in this study. Another benefit was that more than 85 percent of the patients stated that there were improvements in the common diabetic symptoms of excessive thirst, frequent urination and fatigue.

Chromium and Insulin

Chromium is used in the body to help insulin transfer glucose into the cells where it can be used for energy. This helps to reduce the amount of sugar in the blood, and it may also help to reduce the risk of diabetes. By improving the body's insulin sensitivity, chromium may help to increase lean muscle mass and decrease body fat.

Chromium and the Cardiovascular System

Chromium is also needed to help support a healthy cardiovascular system. Chromium is used to help regulate cholesterol levels. It does this by helping to decrease LDL (bad cholesterol) levels and increase HDL (good cholesterol) levels. Chromium may also help to decrease high blood pressure levels. These affects on the cardiovascular system may help to reduce heart disease and the occurrence of stroke.

More Benefits of Chromium

Low levels of chromium are often associated with the onset of glaucoma, so supplementing with chromium may help to reduce the risk of glaucoma. Chromium can also help to reduce the loss of calcium in the bones. Chromium can be especially helpful to women who are going through menopause and are at risk for osteoporosis.

Supplementing with chromium is important for your health, because chromium is needed by the body, but it is not produced within the body. DC Labs Formula 918 can help to improve your body's insulin sensitivity, and it can help to support the cardiovascular system.

DC Labs Formula 918 is made in America to ensure quality, purity, and safety.
